This Plum Pudding Vodka brings the flavors of this classic Christmas dessert to your cocktails. Plum vodka is made by infusing the vodka with flavorful fruit, vanilla beans, cinnamon sticks, and nutmeg.
Do you like Plum Pudding? How about Vodka? Well, have I got the treat for you - Plum Pudding Vodka!
This little glass is bursting with Christmas aromas from vodka infused with dried fruits and spices.
And you know what? It actually does taste like Plum Pudding!
When I made this, my chief taste tester, otherwise known as my husband, drank up his small glass and declared "Wow, this has to go on the blog" before pouring himself another glass.
Even to a non Plum Pudding lover, like me, it's pretty delicious. It makes for a great cordial, or a fun mixer for Christmas cocktails.
It would be wonderful to sip after Christmas dinner in lieu of dessert, or even serve it with a little square of Vanilla Tablet.
You could also make a batch and give it to friends as an edible Christmas gift!
Have you ever tried making your own Vodka infusions? What are your favorite flavor combinations?
Plum Pudding Vodka
- 1 bottle vodka about 700ml
- 250 g dark brown sugar
- 250 g mixed fruit (sultanas currants, raisins, mixed peel)
- Grated zest and juice of 1 orange
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 2 vanilla beans split, seeds scraped
- ½ tsp grated nutmeg
- 1 tsp mixed spice
- Combine all of the ingredients in a large jar and cover with a lid. Set aside in a cool place for 1 week, shaking once a day to mix the ingredients.
- Strain through a very fine sieve and decant into bottles. Seal the bottles and store in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.
My parents and grandparents used to make something very similar with plums (called Sliwowica) or cherries but the best infused vodka I've ever had must have been a young (green) walnut vodka! Amazingly sweet and fragrant!

What great flavors! I would love to have a bottle of this stored away for the year.
Thanks Sylvie 😀 It's so easy to make too. I will definitely be making some to give away as gifts next year.
I totally love the sound of this! Bookmarking for next Christmas 🙂
Thanks Lisa 😀
Merry Christmas 🙂
Wow - I'll bet this is just stunningly fragrant. Would be a wonderful drink for a chilly northern winter Xmas, too.
You're right, it would be wonderful in chilly winters too.
Merry Christmas 😀

When I saw the title I thought 'but you don't like plum pudding!'. I don't either but I do love the smell of it and I love vodka so looks like you're on a winner.
I haven't made any infused vodkas myself but I was going to make limoncello this year (where did the year go?). I'll have to save it for next year.
I want to try my hand at making limoncello too. 😀
Merry Christmas Claire 😀
I made it last year and it was soooo much better than the store bought stuff. I meant to make it this year so it would be done for thanksgiving... then it got pushed back I thought I would have it done for christmas... still haven't started! where did the year go?
I know the feeling firenzilla 😀 Merry Christmas.
Very elegant setting. Love the photography.
Thank you Liz 😀
What a wonderful drink! Those flavors are just heavenly.
Thanks Rosa. Happy Holidays 😀
